    Correct, with the exception that with a hybrid autofocus system like Olympus the first focus is with PDAF and the fine-tuning is with CDAF so calibrating the PDAF will make the focus process a little...

    Camera Topics Re: Selling a Olympus E-5 what's the value?

    With the grip they're still going for over $1000. 5500 shots is pretty much brand new; if it's in an equally good condition, I'd price it pretty high.

    CDAF and PDAF are functions of the body, but how they work requires things from the lens. PDAF measures the distance to your subject and shoots the lens motor straight there in one swift motion. ...

  15. Lens Topics Re: Which Wide Angle to use with E300 for Real Estate?

    Four-thirds certainly isn't a full-frame sensor. For your budget, the Olympus 9-18mm f/4-5.6 is probably what you want as indoor real estate shots really need 20mm (equivalent) focal length or...

    Camera Topics Re: M4/3 and 4/3--new systems for me

    I dunno if you can exchange anything, but given that you chose the 12-60, you'd do better with the E-M1 which can PDAF focus it for you. Alternatively, the 14-54ii works better on the E-M5ii as a...

    Camera Topics Re: 620 or E3

    Well, the E-620 has the same sensor as the E-30 while the E-3 has the same sensor as the E-520, so your current gear gives you a pretty good idea of what each option will offer photo-wise. I love...
